Infiniti Displays 2013 JX35 at May GAAMA Luncheon


Infiniti displayed the new 2013 Infiniti JX35, a 3-row, 7-passenger luxury crossover, at this month’s meeting of the Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association (GAAMA).

Kyle Bazemore, Infiniti’s Senior Manager for U.S. Communications, introduced the model. Key features on the JX are aimed at ease of use and safety. Sliding second-row seats allow third-row access without removing a child safety seat. The Infiniti Connection telematics system synchronizes with Google Calendar and can provide turn-by-turn directions to your next appointment. The JX also boasts the world’s first backup collision intervention system. With the vehicle in reverse, the system can detect obstacles and brake if necessary to avoid a collision. Infiniti’s Around View monitor also assists in low-speed maneuvering.

Available in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, the JX35 is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 producing 265-horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. The sole transmission offered is a CVT, a common unit in Nissans but new to the Infiniti brand. The Smyrna, Tennessee-built JX has an EPA fuel economy rating of 24 mpg highway, 18 mpg city for the front-drive model. The all-wheel drive version takes only 1-mpg hit to its highway economy.

The JX35 has a base price of $40,450. The all-wheel drive model commands a $1,100 premium. The fully-optioned model on display had a range of features – panoramic sunroof, navigation, Bose sound, adaptive cruise control and rear-seat entertainment to name a few. The bottom line on that example was about $54,000.

GAAMA members expressed excitement about the JX, particularly its styling. Both inside and out, the lines are dramatic and bold in a segment that tends toward safer designs. The car-buying public seems to agree. Bazemore remarked that in April, the first full month sales, the JX was just behind the G sedan, Infiniti’s top-selling model, in sales volume.

GAAMA thanks Kyle Bazemore and Infiniti for sponsoring our May luncheon and providing a closer look at the JX35.
